Highs and Lows
Let’s start with the low. Aidan has a pattern of learning. With lots of repetition he’ll pick up a new skill- eating, walking, turning pages of a book, making choices etc. Then, for no apparent reason he drops it like a hot potato. “I’m all done with that for the time being.” Then when a random amount of time has passed, again for no apparent reason, he picks up the skill again.
That’s where we are with the ipad. Aidan initially was doing a great job looking, touching, making choices. Now he refuses to look at it. So I’m working hard on my positive spin game. Refusing is actually making a choice and communicating. I have no doubt he’ll be ready for the ipad again at some point in the undefined future.
Now we wait. And if this kid thinks he can out-stubborn me, he’s got another thing coming.
Stay tuned tomorrow for the high…it’s a goodie.
